identified as having special needs not being met in school district programs. Programs may include
academics, vocational skills, work-study, specialized activities or a combination of these. The BOCES
Report Card includes alternative education program enrollment and outcome data for students in grades 5
through 8, as well as students in programs leading to high school diplomas or high school equivalency
diplomas. Data source: 2004 BOCES Survey

Adult Basic Education
Based on data reported for the National Reporting System (NRS) for adult education programs, enrollment in
adult basic education programs for 2003-2004 was 501.
Educational Gain
Under the NRS, educational gain is the primary goal for students in adult beginning/ intermediate programs,
adult secondary (low) programs, and in English for speakers of other languages programs. Students are
counted as achieving educational gain if they exceed established reference points in their standardized test
scores between enrollment and re-testing.

Other Outcomes (2001-02 through 2003-04)
The following outcome measures are consistent with the National Reporting System (NRS) for adult
education. Students in adult secondary (high) programs are considered to have a primary goal of obtaining a
secondary or high school equivalency diploma. For all other outcomes, the student achievements correlate to
the students indicating those goals at intake.

                  Special Education Enrollment and Tuition
When placing students, districts select among classrooms with different student/staff ratios consistent with
each student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). The following are four of the alternatives:
 12 students per teacher plus one paraprofessional (12:1:1)
 6 students per teacher plus one paraprofessional (6:1:1)
 12 students per teacher plus four paraprofessionals (12:1+1:3)
 8 students per teacher plus 1 paraprofessional (8:1:1)


An addendum of enrollment and tuition information will be attached to this report if this BOCES provides
other options of student/staff ratios.

Tuition rates exclude the costs of related services, preschool and summer school programs. BOCES with
multiple tuition rates for a program have calculated an average rate. Data source for enrollment and
tuition: 602 Report.

                         School Library System Services, a state-aided program sponsored by each
                         BOCES, provide vital library and information resources to public and
nonpublic schools throughout the State. Each system operates under an approved plan of service and
provides leadership and training through professional development activities; facilitates resource-
sharing among its member school libraries; promotes advances in technology for information storage
and retrieval; focuses on cooperative collection development of school library materials; addresses the
information needs of special client groups and participates in regional library issues with public,
academic and special libraries. Students, teachers and administrators in each BOCES service area
benefit from the activities of the program. The charts below depict selected school library system
services.

          State Testing Program for All Component Districts
          The State testing program provides data to the State Education Department and local
          school districts for use in planning, managing, and evaluating educational programs. The
          4th and 8th grade English language arts (ELA) and mathematics tests measure student
          performance on the State standards for the elementary and middle grades, while the
          Regents examinations are key indicators of student progress in the secondary grades.
          These data are calculated by aggregating district-level results for general education
          students and pupils with disabilities for all component districts.

                                         Regents Examinations
In 1996, the Regents acted to raise learning standards by requiring future students to demonstrate competence for
graduation using Regents examinations, rather than the lower-level Regents competency tests (RCTs). All general-
education students who entered ninth grade in the fall of 1996 were required to score 65 or higher (55 if approved by
the local school board) on the Regents examination in comprehensive English to earn a local diploma. General-
education students who entered ninth grade in the fall of 1997 are required to score 65 or higher (55 if approved by
the local school board) on the Regents examination in comprehensive English and on a Regents examination in
mathematics. The number of Regents examinations required for graduation has increased with each succeeding
freshman class. Added requirements for the freshman class of 1998 were the Regents examinations in global history
and geography and U.S. history & government. The freshman class of 1999 has to also pass a Regents examination
in science.
Data were collected to assess the progress that students are making toward meeting new graduation requirements for
their cohort. The following charts show the percentage of cohort members in component districts who scored 55-
100 and 65-100 on each Regents examination after four years. The data include results for students with disabilities.
